Samsung should learn something from Microsoft as Microsoft is supporting its devices for updates till 3 years whereas Samsung is such a loser company which cannot even provide software update support for a 22 year old device for updates and that device is Samsung galaxy S3 .... its such a shame that a company like Samsung who tends to be a market leader is in reality nothing but a loser company. ...
"Just like other iterations of Windows Phone software, 8.1 will feature the typical 3 years of software support and updates."
Windows Phone 7 owners sure as hell didn't get 3 years of support and updates.
usman230, 11 May 2014FYI i have lumia 620 wp os doesnt even provide the basic things n tools an OS should have..... moreYeah right! You have a 620 and you don't know that all of the things you have written are currently available on WP8.1 I pity over your hypocrisy. Try again.

wp os doesnt even provide the basic things n tools an OS should have... people waitng mnths n mnths for things like tap to wakeup , notification centre ,separate volume controls for notification n media etc. etc.
WP os , grow up already !!!! if u want to keep pace with android
does this mean all the phones that get WP8.1 now will receive update for 3 yrs till 2017 ..?or just the new released phones..?
im using WP8.1 dev preview.. its good .. cant wait for official update with other nokia features...
June 24th. Lol, MS just killed the deal by releasing it late, so late. Don't announce a phone when you have no plan to make it available in two weeks from announcement date.

Does it support flash already? Is it possible to install 3rd party apps just like on android?
Nice, but too bad the Nokia Lumia 930 is taking so long to arrive on the market. Wish that could be earlier, so the update can roll out earlier too.
Already using windows 8.1 dev edition in my lumia 520...works like charm so many good features are there..loving the overall experience.
A 3 years life cycle is a nice thing, considering the WP7.5 fiasco. Hope that Microsoft is ading some new features to the audio player, as the OS can't play lossless files, at least wave support could be put into action.
Windows OS the best! Still lacking some apps in store. Hopefully won't be long before it catches apple and android.
